Natural Australia

Great Barrier Reef, Cairns – The world’s largest coral reef is simply not to be missed. Go sea walking, snorkelling, cruise in a glass bottomed boat or ride a sea plane to see this natural wonder of 3,000 individual reefs and unbelievable marine life.

Daintree, Cairns – The world’s oldest rainforest, the Daintree is a short trip away. Recommended for nature and outdoor lovers. Take the scenic rail to Kuranda, the village in the rainforest, enjoy stunning views of spectacular mountains, waterfalls and the Barron Gorge.

12 Apostles, Melbourne – Twelve monumental rocks rising majestically out of the ocean. Years of constant erosion have reduced these limestone cliffs to caves and rocks. The dark crevices turning yellow under the full sun make them one for the shutter!

Tasmania – In a land full of natural wonders, Tasmania tops the list by a mile.

Maria Island – Oyster like rock forms, aquamarine shallows and absolutely no homo sapiens or coach buses... a day in Maria Island, Tasmania, is straight out of a fairy tale.

Cradle Mountain – The snow dusted Cradle Mountain is a Heritage site with simply ‘gobsmacking’ scenery. The Dove Lake area beneath these towering dolerite columns has several day walks like the Enchanted Walk and Waterfalls Walk. Australia’s greatest bush trek, the Overland Trek up to Lake St. Clair takes place here.

Wineglass Bay & Freycinet – This peninsula of pink granite mountains and pure white beaches is home to the famous Wineglass Bay, one of world’s top beaches. The Hazards, 3 pink granite peaks, frame this wonderful stretch.
